There are plenty of DH candidates on the free agent market, but trades are possible too. Here's our look at the DH landscape...
- Milton Bradley, Cubs. The Cubs seem certain to unload Bradley, perhaps on the Rangers, Mets, or Rays (obviously the Mets would have to use Bradley in the outfield). Surely by now you've memorized the fact that he's owed $21MM over the next two seasons.
- Luke Scott, Orioles. Scott came up in our left field analysis. He could fit the mold as an arbitration-eligible trade candidate, in the vein of Jeremy Hermida and Mark Teahen.
- Travis Hafner, Indians. I'm guessing Hafner can be had; he's owed $40.25MM over the next three seasons. His .272/.355/.470 line this year was a step in the right direction though.
- Jack Cust, Athletics. We mentioned Cust in that same left field post, wondering if the A's will tender him a contract next month.
- Pat Burrell, Rays. He's been linked to the Cubs in a possible Bradley swap, though the money doesn't match up and the Cubs would have to flip Burrell or else have ghastly outfield corner defense.
- Mike Jacobs, Royals. The only reason the Royals would tender Jacobs a contract next month would be to save face for last year's Leo Nunez swap.
- David Ortiz, Red Sox. No real indication that he's on the block, but Ortiz is owed $12.5MM next year and slumped to .238/.332/.462 in '09. If only he could have a mulligan on those first two months.
